So I am in search of pens that shall aid my writing in the upcoming exams. Especially for the English Exam where I must write two essays in the space of 2.5hours, including the analysis of three unseen texts, hence I must write with speed but also my writing ought to be legible.
Perhaps it's the way I hold the pen I'm not sure but I can't sustain writing with presentational fluency and get blisters on my hands very easily. For sciences even I can't take much notes and am forced to read since my hand starts aching very easily.
So if you guys have any suggestion, let me know
The only pens that I could write well with were during GCSEs these small and thick biros with a rubber grip but I can't recall the make and haven't seen them around either. So something similar perhaps?
I guess you just have to try a few things and see what you like. Personally I can only write with an ink pen, but that's just because I grew up with it. Whatever you choose, practise with it for a bit up until your exam and you should be ok
I find Bic biros really good, particularly the 'fine' ones. I gave up on fountain pens a few years ago, they always broke on me! (and changing the cartridge is annoying) I'm sure there are plenty of biros with rubber grips.
Last year, I brought this biro, which was very good (only found out about it because I'd found a blue one of these in my science class and kept it ). I also used my Parker fountain pen but this time I had no black ink cartridges left (normally use blue) and wasn't willing to buy something I probably wouldn't use again and would have loads left over .
